After Detention And Release, Undocumented Mother And Child Wait For Day In Immigration Court
WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 13: Honduran asylum seeker Sandra Sanchez embraces her daughter Yanela Sanchez, 2 1/2, at a playground on February 13, 2019 in the greater Washington D.C. area. Photographs of Yanela crying as she and her mother were taken into custody at the U.S.-Mexico border on June 12, 2018 were widely published during the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy. Sandra Sanchez said that she and Yanela were initially held by U.S. immigration authorities for 18 days in three separate Texas detention facilities before being released pending an immigration court date. They have yet to receive a first hearing. Without a work permit, Sanchez cannot seek legal employment and is unable to afford an attorney to advocate for her and her daughter.
